RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2014-15

One of several young defensemen who saw action for New Jersey last season, the former University of Michigan star played the most out of the budding blueliners, as he was able to adapt defensively more quickly than teammate Eric Gelinas. Merrill grabbed two goals and 11 points in 52 contests last season while averaged 19:14 of ice time as a rookie. The Devils would like him to contribute more offensively, but he won’t be a liability in his own zone, something the Devils find more valuable. Merrill’s role on the team likely will increase this season, and he’s worth a look in very deep keeper leagues.

2012-13

Merrill is one of New Jersey's more highly rated defensive prospects but has elected to return to the University of Michigan for his junior season. He turned some heads at the club's prospect development camp in July, but the team's second-round pick from 2010 will wait at least one more year before signing a professional contract with New Jersey.

2011-12

Merrill, the Devils' second-round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, posted 25 points (7 G, 25 A) in 42 games as a freshman at the University of Michigan last season. He's listed at 6-foot-3, 209 pounds, which is good size for a defenseman but he'll have plenty of time to work on his game before stepping onto NHL ice.
